Rudo means “tough.” Cursi means “corny.” Sorry for the remedial Spanish lesson, but I took French in high school, so all this is news to me.

In the tale of two brothers that is RUDO Y CURSI, Diego Luna is the tough Beto — hot-headed and an inveterate gambler — while Gael Garcia Bernal is the corny Tato, a romantic with dreams of becoming a singing star. What may help both siblings achieve their desires is that they’re fantastic soccer players who have been scooped up by a talent scout (Guillermo Francella) and placed on a fast-track for sports stardom. But since this tale happens to be told by Carlos Cuaron — who, with brother Alfonso, co-wrote Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN and is here making his feature directorial debut — things may not go quite the way either man wishes.

But, in the interim, you’ll get to see Bernal perform the corniest cover of Cheap Trick’s I Want You to Want Me ever.

Here is my interview with Carlos Cuaron.
